A clinical trial management system (CTMS) is a software system used by biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries to manage clinical trials in clinical research. CTMS is used to maintain and manage planning, performing and reporting functions, along with participant contact information, tracking deadlines and milestones. It also manages investigator payments and allows for managing complete clinical supply chain. CTMS offers various advantages over paper-based systems as it improves protocols, ensures regulatory compliance, speeds up reporting time and monitors performance metrics in real-time.
Market Dynamics: The global clinical trial management system market is estimated to be valued at US$ 1120.48 million in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.6% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
The growing adoption of digital technologies in healthcare sector is a major driver expected to flourish the clinical trial management system market over the forecast period. The use of cloud computing, blockchain and artificial intelligence technologies are making clinical trials more efficient and cost-effective. For example, AI can help improve site feasibility, patient recruitment, retention and monitor trials in real-time. Similarly, blockchain facilitates transparency and ensures security of trial data. Covid-19 pandemic has further accelerated the digitalization of clinical trials as regulatory agencies encouraged decentralized and remote trials using digital health tools. Another driver is the increasing R&D investments by biopharmaceutical companies for developing novel drugs to cater growing disease burden worldwide. However, data privacy and security concerns related to use of advanced technologies may hinder market growth.
The global clinical trial management system market is dominated by web-based sub-segment. Around 60% of the clinical trials are managed through web-based CTMS as it provides flexibility of accessing data from anywhere and helps in centralized data management. The cloud-based sub-segment is also growing at a faster rate due to benefits like easy integration, cost-effectiveness and scalability.
